Pokemon Go to launch in Europe, Asia in a few days – report
MANILA, Philippines – Pokemon Go, the highly popular augmented-reality Pokemon game made by Niantic and Nintendo, might roll out in Europe and Asia soon, according to The Wall Street Journal (WSJ).
On Friday, July 8, Niantic CEO John Hanke told Business Insider that a further international rollout was "paused until we're comfortable". This, after the game suffered congestion and server issues. (READ: Pokemon Go's international rollout paused)
WSJ, however, reported on July 11 that "people familiar with plans for the game" said it will likely be "available in other regions, including Europe, Japan and other Asian nations within a few days."
The video game has already been released in the United States, New Zealand, and Australia.
Eager players from other regions, however, have been able to play the game for a while after APK files and other means to access the game circulated online. But there have also been reports of a malware-infected version of Pokemon Go for Android devices. – Rappler.com
